Abstract

Sodium-fluoride (NaF) positron emission tomography (PET) is a sensitive method to detect altered bone mineralization. Its increasing use in routine clinical practice for metastatic bone disease has also resulted in the detection or characterization of incidental benign bone lesions. A spectrum of NaF PET scan cases with benign bone tumors are presented in this article, including whole body PET bone scan and selected PET/computed tomography (CT), CT, or magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of the region of interest. The reader will be able to improve their knowledge related to the clinical presentation of these entities, some are rare and recognize based on NaF PET and CT/MRI patterns by reviewing these cases.
